From Publishers WeeklyNext June Brazil will host a U.N. Earth Summit to discuss worldwide environmental policies. This handsomely illustrated volume is a companion to Turner Broadcasting's six-hour special program concerning the conference. Porritt, an environmental advocate in Britain, sets the stage and contributes a piece on population. Norman Myers, Lester Brown, Stephen Schneider, David Bellamy, Robin Hanbury-Tenison write about rain forests, croplands, global warming, wetlands and tribal peoples. Other environmentalists discuss rural resources, oceans, mountains, rivers and lakes, shorelines and estuaries, biodiversity. Each topic is accompanied by dramatic color photographs, elaborate graphics and quotations from international celebrities and leaders. The book sends a powerful message that shows effectively where we stand in relation to the health of the earth.Copyright 1991 Reed Business Information, Inc
